Thank you to our many supporters, friends and family,

your constant encouragement saw us through some difficult times. A special thank you to Mumm for donating the celebratory champagne. Don't forget you can still donate and help Julia's house at www.justgiving.com/thebullhotel.

I would like to take this opportunity to say how proud I am of the team, from the day we started training to the euphoric moment of finishing under 24 hours, everyone has given their all. This and the fact we had no rain made my job so much easier. The 6ft of snow on Nevis and the 80mph gusts of wind on both Scafell Pike and Snowdon certainly sapped our energy and warmth - but didn't stop us!

There will be more posts coming with photos that we didn't have time, or energy, to post during the challenge. Mal.
